Elephant in the Dome Podcast: Democrat bill expected to put stores out of business

Feb 29, 2024

Many small Washington stores may be forced out of business by a bill passed by legislative Democrats.

The legislation calls for employee background checks and several very expensive security requirements.

It forces businesses to buy and maintain costly audio/video surveillance systems with months of data storage and carry one million dollars of liability insurance.

Senators John Braun, Lynda Wilson, Keith Wagoner, Perry Dozier and Phil Fortunato say only one type of small business would be targeted in this way – gun stores.
